Overview

EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT SURVIVING IN THE WILD

“During my first years of learning survival I took a course in survival and primitive earth skills taught by John and Geri McPherson. I was excited by their unbelievable passion and their intrinsic understanding of survival. Their teachings took me from understanding basic skills to a full-blown love for the ancient technologies that humans developed to survive. John and Geri are the real deal. They don’t just teach this stuff, they live it. I loved the experience with them so much I came back a second time a few years later. Now that I have traveled the world as Survivorman—experiencing and filming survival in every ecosystem there is—I can sit back and watch my shows and see John and Geri’s teachings peek through in every situation. I have been able to understand survival because of John and Geri, and can highly recommend this book.”
--Les Stroud, AKA Survivorman

    I Also Recommend:

    I love this book. I wanted to go live in the wilderness after I read it. Note: If you ever go on a trip over a wooded area KEEP this book with you!

    It's a good book. I don't have enough characters to tell you how good it was. So it was good.
